This  is  a  digital  copy  of  a  book  that  was  preserved  for  generations  on  library  shelves  before  it  was  carefully  scanned  by  Google  as  part  of  a  project 
to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 
to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 
are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  marginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the

**  These  were  honoured  in  their  generations^  and  were 
the  glory  of  the  times  **

UNDER  the  direction  and  with  the  assistance  of  the  Town 
•  History  Conunittee,  Bev.  Moses  T.  Bunnels,  an  accom- 
plished genealogist^  was  actively  employed  two  years  in  the  col- 
lection of  material  for  the  registers  of  Plymouth  families.  In 
this  work  he  was  a  devoted  and  a  tireless  laborer.  Before  the  col- 
lection of  material  was  completed,  and  before  any  of  the  registers 
were  prepared  for  the  press,  his  faithful  labor  was  suddenly 
arrested  by  his  death.  Many  of  the  pages  of  this  volume  are 
memorials  to  his  industry  and  intelligent  investigation. 

In  a  research  for  the  earlier  American  generations  of  the  Ply- 
mouth families,  in  extending  the  record  of  the  registers  and  in 
preparing  them  for  the  press,  I  have  written  over  two  thousand 
letters,  and  have  labored  without  interruption  two  years. 

The  constant  types  of  mental  and  moral  forces  which  have 
characterized  many  of  the  families  of  Plymouth  through  suc- 
ceeding generations,  and  the  influence  for  good  or  ill  effected  by 
intermarriage,  present  an  interesting  study  of  the  law  of  inher- 
itance. And  in  the  same  connection  a  study  of  the  manners, 
customs,  and  usages  of  the  early  settlers  in  the  vaUey  of  the 
Pemigewasset,  compared  with  those  of  the  present  generation, 
will  present  abundant  evid^ice  of  the  intellectual  progress  and 
the  improvement  in  the  conditions  of  life  which  have  attended 
the  succession  of  years. 


With  tmalloyed  pleasure  and  with  grateful  and  enduring  mem- 
ories I  freely  acknowledge  the  e£Scient  and  constant  assistance  of 
all  the  members  of  the  Town  History  Committee  and  of  Louisa 
y.  George^  Charlotte  E.  Dearborn,  Martha  M.  Clark,  Helen  M. 
Clark,  —  all  of  Plymouth*  To  the  New  Hampshire  State  Library, 
the  New  Hampshire  Historical  Society,  and  the  New  England 
Historic  Genealogical  Society  I  am  indebted  for  free  access  to 
their  accumulating  volumes  of  genealogy.  It  is  a  part  of  the 
pleasure  attending  the  completion  of  this  volume  that  I  am  per- 
mitted to  express  my  gratitude  to  Bev.  John  L.  Merrill  of  Fitch- 
burg,  Mass.,  for  his  efficient  assistance  in  compiling  the  Merrill 
Tester,  to  C.  F,  Surge  of  HoUis  and  Guy  S,  Rix  of  Concord 
for  polite  attention  to  repeated  inquiries.  From  Dexter  D.  Dow 
and  Russell  T.  Bartlett,  custodians  of  county  records,  and  from 
George  A.  Gordon,  corresponding  secretary  of  the  New  England 
Historic-Genealogical  Society,  I  have  received  many  valuable 
favors  which  have  been  incorporated  in  this  volume.

reinforce  the  army  at  Boston.  The  term  of  service  was  three  months. 
In  the  record  at  Hollis  of  his  marriage  he  is  called  ''  of  Hollis.''  But

an  association  of  Baptists  in  Sutton  and  New  London,  and  he  removed 
to  Sutton,  1782.  Nathaniel  Everett,  of  New  London,  was  paid  for

ness, journeyed  on  horseback  from  Hudson  to  Ticonderoga,  and

received  the  advantages  of  the  public  schools,  he  started  out  with  the 
eagerness  of  youth  to  win  his  way  in  the  world.  At  this  time  the 
railroad  had  been  built  through  the  town,  and  the  whistle  and  rumble 
of  the  passing  trains  incited  an  early  ambition  to  engage  in  railroading.

Fitchburg  RR,  succeeded  by  a  brief  service  with  the  Boston  &  Maine

that  corporation  until  1864,  when  he  entered  the  service  of  the  Lehigh 
Valley  RR  as  passenger  conductor,  and  subsequently  as  general  pas- 
senger agent,  with  an  office  in  New  York  City,  from  which  he  retired 
with  an  honorable  record  in  1888.  Later,  for  twelve  yeara  he  engaged 
in  the  coal  business,  and  was  an  active  partner  of  the  firm  J.  A.  Brad- 
ford &  Co.,  of  Boston,  Mass.  In  the  Masonic  fraternity  he  has  attained 
unusual  prominence  and  distinction.  He  was  made  a  Mason  in  St.

register  of  probate,  to  succeed  Jonathan  M.  Sewall.  It  is  probable 
that  this  appointment  was  the  occasion  of  his  removal  to  Plymouth. 
He  attended  the  April  term  of  the  court  of  sessions,  and  was  selected 
by  the  court  to  act  as  the  Eing^s  attorney,  and  again  at  the  April 
term,  1775.  At  the  June  term  of  the  court  of  common  pleas,  1774, 
he  entered  five  actions.  In  advance  of  many  who  were  holding  office 
by  royal  appointment  he  openly  declared  for  the  cause  of  the  Ameri- 
can patriots.  With  the  force  of  a  vigorous  mind  and  the  influence  of 
a  worthy  character  he  earnestly  combated  a  waning  sentiment  of 
loyalty  to  the  crown.  In  the  fourth  provincial  congress,  which  con- 
vened at  Exeter,  May  17,  1775,  and  was  dissolved,  Nov.  15,  1775, 
Abel  Webster  was  a  delegate,  representing  Plymouth,  Gamptou, 
Sumney,  and  New  Chester.  About  the  middle  of  the  session  Moses 
Dow  was  admitted  a  delegate,  representing  Plymouth  and  Bumney. 
During  the  remainder  of  the  session  of  the  fourth  provincial  Congress, 
Plymouth  and  Rumney  enjoyed  the  service  of  two  trusted  delegates. 
In  1776  Moses  Dow  was  an  agent  of  Plymouth  to  receive  arms  and 
ammunition  from  the  State.  He  removed  from  Plymouth  to  Haver- 
hill, 1779.  He  was  a  representative  from  Haverhill,  1781,  1782, 
1790, 1793.  Councillor  under  temporary  constitution  for  the  official 
year,  Dec.  17, 1788,  to  June  2, 1784,  and  senator  under  the  permanent 
constitution  for  the  years,  beginning  June,  1784  and  1791,  and  the 
last  year  he  was  president  of  the  senate ;  councillor,  1785  and  1786. 
He  also  was  postmaster,  town  clerk,  moderator,  treasurer,  and  select- 
man of  Haverhill.  He  was  continued  in  the  office  of  register  of  pro- 
bate until  1808,  when  he  resigned  to  accept  the  appointment  of 
justice  of  the  court  of  common  pleas  for  Grafton  County,  which  office 
he  held  until  his  death.  In  the  militia  his  premotions,  running  an 
even  race  with  his  honors  in  law  and  in  politics,  wore  fully  earned 
by  popularity  and  efficient  service.  He  rose  to  the  rank  of  major- 
general  and  retired  frem  the  service  18 — .  Gen.  Dow,  as  appears, 
lived  in  Plymouth  only  a  few  years,  and  an  extended  sketch  is  not 
demanded  in  this  connection.  Reference  is  made  to  notices,  which 
are  found  in  Bench  and  Bar  History  of  Haverhill, ''  Granite  Monthly,"
